It's almost been a year since I last stepped into my favourite lunch spot in the CBD, SPRMRKT. I use my lunch hour to hit the gym, you see, so I don't really go out for lunch anymore unless there's L.A. Lunch or I'm PMS-singly hungry.
While SPRMRKT's menu has been slightly updated (a bid to keep their menu refreshed), its cosy, relaxed and unpretentious vibe is still very much a part of what makes them so charming and beloved by regulars.
Like with the Corn & Grilled Chicken Soup ($11), whereupon learning that Beeps and I were sharing it, they'd thoughtfully split up the soup into 2 bowls for the both of us.
Chunky pieces of tender smoky grilled chicken breast were dunked into a wholesome corn puree with sweet corn kernels.
The fried breadcrumbed polenta cubes were an excellent alternative to croutons. I'm not usually a fan of polenta but these were addictively good.
A new addition to their all-day breakfast menu, the Ham Cheese & Mushroom Omelette ($14) was delicious in its simplicity and ultra generous with the fillings.
Beeps opted for her favourite, the Chicken Mayo Breakfast Croissant ($7), with moist chicken tossed in creamy mayo stuffed between buttery pillows of flaky croissant.
